summer on its way out & thank you for the rain

.....rainy day, allowing to catch up on some overdue farm paperwork. Milking sheep came to a close last week drying everybody off, ram is out and the annual Meadowset Farm honeymoon of our sheep has begun. This year was filled with activities getting our "nano" sheep dairy of the ground. Jan and Feb were filled with construction of milk and make room, parlor, farm store etc. Feb and Apr were busy with lambing of a total of 80+ lambs. Milking season kicked off in mid-March and lasted until late August. Ewe inventory is completed, all data entered, ewes tagged and in the database, and 60 happy ewes are ready to be bred in the next couple of months as we are getting ready to plan another milking season. Now the work is shifting to the aging room, marketing and getting a winter farmer's market attendance organized. The farm store is open for business although things are not quite all in place but we are working on it. Well, we are hoping for a nice fall with good grazing and another cutting of hay.

Enjoy the bounties of your gardens, visit and support your local farmers, Happy Fall, so long!
